have around mosques around new zealand that will continue until we believe there is no threat well across new zealand people are responding to the horror of friday's events with interfaith solidarity christians and prayed for the muslim victims during sunday services a priest and a reference of denounced hatred and racism live now to under thomas in christchurch andras the police have now confirmed that one more person has died what more they've been say. that's right the number of people we now know died in the attacks the twin attacks on friday is fifty in a sense there's a silver lining to that figure because it's only one more than we knew about in the immediate aftermath of the attacks and in fact that fiftieth body was one founding side one of the mosques as a place where clearing bodies from the two mosques attack so no one has died of their injuries in the last twenty four hours in
2:03 am
a sense that is some good news the police also said that of the fifty people injured in the attacks thirty six remain in hospital most of them here in christchurch about one other child has been flown to or cling to four year old girl she's in a hospice i thirty seven hospital in total well all day on saturday people were coming in laying flowers near the court and near the owl nor mosque in amongst the people who came to that court and among those who stood quietly with some of the survivors here's more reports looking and talking to some of those people. off to the violent frenzy the flowers all day on saturday people came to lay them in tribute to the date and then stand wispa and weep among those gathered with survivors and their stories on one fiji. great british t.v. started his. three or four minutes into. when you heard the shots.
2:04 am
and noises coming near so then i decided to. trade and jump on my wife tried to support his best friend sister linda and when she tried to talk shit like that. one of coming you know on their hands my wife it's enjoyed here and so i wanted to go to linda and linda is right one of my friend knows he is from india and know it was him ron he was short one blood on his shoulder so i was holding him and then the gun gunmen put the gun through the window and shot him while he was on my level his shooting couple of drugs in the head he was. when he finished the bullet he left of the. way. friday's attacks were targeted at migrants and
2:05 am
muslims but their impact has been to unite all new zealanders in horror and sadness some echoed the prime minister's call for urgent action on guns i think we should ban all guns in new zone dannie people today have guns is the place and the armed forces be all banned it does made of a thing in ghana or one and one thing. got the hanes on all guns or they should be all been those who came to pay tribute saw the police working nearby they saw the hearses to arriving and leaving regularly collecting bodies from the al nor mosque. when his press conference the police commissioner confirmed now that all bodies have been removed from the two mosques that were attacks he also said a bit more about the main suspect brenton tyrant and that the police believe that
2:06 am
he was acting alone all kinds of rumors were swirling around christchurch in the immediate aftermath of the attack that perhaps there was more than one gunman but one gunman attacked one mosque and one another multiple we now know that the place do not believe that was the case they believe that brinson target was acting alone three other people who were arrested in the immediate aftermath of the attacks all two of them have been released without charge one was charged with a firearm a faint somehow to gun on him to come to the court in the place don't believe he was involved in the attacks and so now it's sunday and there have been church services where people have been coming together and obviously thinking about what happened in the other worshipping service on friday the community really pulling together that's the message you get again and again that christ church people really want to pull together and feel that they can put this incident behind them as an up on the nation but something that doesn't have this country in the city from its progressive course i'm joined now by raf mangi you're a city count. here in christ church it's going to be a tough few days and weeks of
2:07 am
a city but do you think it can pull together yeah absolutely i'm really chuffed just looking around down at the most the numbers of people coming out today it's raining streams of people coming in i see it with same trick state and i really want the botanic gardens yesterday we had floral tributes and it really just shows the community of coming out and the parents turning to the kids saying we need to go out and show support you now you've got a british accent you just telling me that you came to new zealand in two thousand and two me off them off of the two thousand and one terrorist attacks because you worried about. in big cities like london new york here in christchurch this is now you'll city and it's come to your door i mean i think that's what people are stunned about it's almost like how can this be coming to new zealand a very very safe country tolerant diverse and really away from the rest of the world but as we're finding out this sort of thing can happen anywhere and it's just something we have to come to terms with the muslim community in new zealand is not
2:08 am
future one percent of the population maybe slightly more pressure which is a pretty small city i would imagine tell me if i'm wrong that most people of the most new faith here will have known somebody either killed or injured in these attacks is going to have a profound impact a migrant in christchurch particular reasons are absolutely i think forty five thousand people here across twenty to thirty different ethnicities so who refugees who are on the. around. you know that will be a challenge for all of us because everyone knows somebody and i think we have to not think that the muslim community is some on a separate group the part of us they're only. the ones i want to get to know where i think. of the various next week which are here a challenge. and the names and faces become well known people start to realize oh my god i know somebody a friend of a friend and it will be. the central turns talks about a big reform of gun laws here what you think about yeah i think absolutely i think
2:09 am
the semiautomatic weapons do need to be dealt with i mean using and has a strong gun culture but it's in the farming and hunting community generally very responsible we have a very very low level of gun crime on the streets but i think this obviously needs to get to. thank you very much well the gun laws will be looked at the center of it has made that clear you had some sirens are going on in the background there and there is certainly a degree of tension still here in christchurch but this is a city determined to get back on its feet or to under thomas there in christchurch andrew thank you. one of them to mention their taxes blogs a new debate about new zealand's gun laws president gupta looks of the outside of the story these are the guns brenton tyrant the man charged with the crisis killings showed the world before friday's indiscriminate killings inside two mosques talented obtained a gun license and twenty seventeen and belong to a gun club where he practiced on the shooting range there an estimated one point
2:10 am
five million firearms in a country of less than five million people gun owners need a license and moscow to background checks and safety training but once they have a license there is no restriction on the number of weapons making it difficult for authorities to track them there is a restriction on the type of weapons though military style guns automatics and handguns require a special license and must be rigid stood new zealand is a country where gun crimes are so rare that police don't routinely carry firearms but some analysts think friday's killings may lead to more public scrutiny of the existing laws what happened was completely unexpected but this is going to be a catalyst for change because often for countries to change the firearms those you need in magnitude of being like this and this may be that event we know with some of the far around but about ninety five percent of the firearms are untraceable and
2:11 am
this instant it's a particular problem because the man seems to have got the firearms lawfully. new zealand's gun laws were last amended nine hundred ninety two in response to the killing of thirteen people in our mourner by a man armed with military style weapons neighboring australia now has some of the world's strictest rules they too were in response to a mosque shooting where a gunman killed thirty five people and tasmania nine hundred ninety six a month earlier a man in the u.k. killed sixteen schoolchildren with handguns that prompted the government there to impose strict gun laws. now friday's attacks are forcing the new zealand government to rethink its gun laws undoubtedly new zealanders will question how someone could have come to have been in position of weapons of this nature. one of the issues we're facing is that. the guns that were used in this case appears to have bring
2:12 am
modified a challenge the government says it will respond to priyanka gupta al jazeera. so i was news even to show solidarity so to people around the world reports from london. gathering to say no to racism and show solidarity with muslims everywhere. this march in london brought together disparate groups all expressing outrage at a gunman's attack on two mosques in new zealand which everybody feel safe. in. many speakers drew a direct link between the statements of some politicians in europe and elsewhere and such attacks on the in the last few weeks there's been incidents. you know. i don't think we're surprised. today reacting and in the white nationalists it was a problem and he said he downplayed the threat so that's the kind of thing i think
2:13 am
people. some protesters say the current climate echoes the rise of the far right in the one nine hundred thirty s. i grew up. on the. spices that was a long time ago still. it is growing oh. in istanbul a crowd also gathered for a funeral cries for the new zealand victims. and in northern india students have taken part in a candlelight vigil nine men of indian origin were reported to be missing after the christchurch attack. around the world there have been calls for governments to take the issue of islamophobia more seriously as well as other forms of hatred there are lots of different groups represented on this demonstration but there's a general feeling that hate crimes are on the rise and that more needs to be done to stop attacks like those in new zealand from happening elsewhere. al-jazeera

2:32 am
dead in zimbabwe as tropicals like an identity pushes its way into the country deadly storm has already claimed more than a hundred lives in mozambique and of malawi. well since friday's attacks in new zealand social media platforms have been criticised for failing to stop the suspect shooting video and hate filled manifesto from going viral technology editor letter home reports. the attack was designed to get maximum coverage teased on twitter and h.n. broadcast live on facebook and all while referencing a popular you tube channel to grab attention and accelerate it sprayed and sprayed it did by the time the social media companies stopped its broadcast it had been shared repeatedly and migrated to listen on sites so why was it so difficult for big to companies with all their resources and latest technology to contain the damage well it turns out it's not as easy as it seems facebook google
2:33 am
twitter and you tube use automated moderation tools to track and remove objectionable content they're part of the global internet forum to counter terrorism leading each other know about extremist material and they attach digital signatures known as hedges to stop their content being uploaded again but machines aren't enough they also have human counting to moderate is tracking checking and deleting content around the clock but live content is problematic and the attack video was live for seventeen minutes long enough for it to find a home on smaller sites last down rabbit holes that the vast majority of us know nothing about one of them is the listen on mrs board ha in which he used to propagate his extremist views into a he announced his attack it's a digital haven where users can remain anonymous and there is little moderation
2:34 am
people there have been posting and praising the gunman's actions. some commentators say there is little incentive for the big tech companies to do better its monitoring company and given there are no fines and no penalties if they fail or they're now just too big to police content effectively anyway blocking sites is one option but that's open to abuse by those who support censorship potentially taking away more than a protects open unfettered access to an n.t. connected global network of information for everyone it's what the web was founded on but something failed during the mood is in new zealand and no one see it sure how to fix it and who's job that should be well let's bring in our in seagal he's the director of the anti-defamation league center on extremism lee joins us now from new york oren we've seen a worrying rise in white supremacy so what are the responses that make people vulnerable to be recruited into white supremacist groups in the first place you
2:35 am
know i mean that's the sixty four thousand dollar question is what is it about these hateful ideologies that big people want to join and i think there's really no one factor that you can point to but i will say that the mainstreaming of hateful discussions whether it's in our public discourse or on social media makes these hateful ideologies floor accessible than ever before and what do you think motivates and inspires white supremacist to carry out these terrible acts of violence because these acts on isolated are they i mean something much more frequently particularly in places of worship. yes i mean look no further than pittsburgh just a few months ago where the jewish community was targeted by whites premise is this well all essentially there is a foundational trope within the white supremacist movement that opposes a sensually immigration and the browning of what they see their white culture you know in the past white supremacist wanted to maintain our now it's about me teaming
2:36 am
their existence and they're blaming others whether it's immigrants or muslims or jews for controlling the process and this is where we're seeing them act out in targeting those communities so and how do you d. radicalize white supremacists and cannot be done then and how do you know miss hate that you just mentioned you know education is indeed key to try to mitigate these threats i think it starts at an early age before people are becoming involved in these movements i think it requires teaching people to be critical thinkers to a white supremacist and hateful ideologies are existing at the same space as legitimate news in particularly online so we need to teach people how to understand and i defy troops and then respond to them and put them on the fringes of society i will also note that we need to do a better job in recognizing what the threats are and we know that white supremacy
2:37 am
is a global terrorist threat and we need to start thinking about it that way just a final thought from you or another and given the recent events in new zealand many experts are saying that some notable political leaders around the world a feeling hate speech and immigrant sentiment i mean the new zealand gunman actually mentioned president trump in his twisted manifesto. but as i think it's hard to draw a direct line between any one elected official and the hatred that we're seeing play out on the ground but what we do know is that these white supremacists and other extremists are preparing not only their weapon but they're supposed to a media approach and so we need to understand how future it spreads we need to hold elected officials accountable for normalizing it and then hopefully we can start tackling this global threat or once again thank you very much for sharing your thoughts about this. thank you. well there been more protests in algeria demanding
2:38 am
president. stand down with this sort of force that needed to drop his bid for a sifter but this hasn't been enough to satisfy the masses because there's now a delay in the next presidential elections. what people want now is the president to step down immediately and for the entire we seem around him to go away with him and anything short of that in my opinion will not will not be enough for the protesters and there were protests are going to keep going and getting bigger and bigger every day until the demands are met people do not only do not only want the elections to to be maintained but they want article one hundred into a guardian doesn't. put stipulates that if the president for any reason could not fulfill his presidential duties he is to step down immediately and the head of the council of the nation should take power and well and new president or and new all
2:39 am
new elections are held and one thing that it's very important to point out is that the current uprising has no leadership there's no leader there's not real leaders apparently there's the that are to negotiate with the regime and so the people i see no to any kind of leadership any kind of organization to their protests and rightly so because history shows that any political any politicisation of the of the peoples uprising it will only be. with the use people for their own interests and so people are. rival demonstrations are taking place in the venezuelan capital on one side are supporters of nicolas maduro who say they've overcome repeated attempts by the u.s. to overthrow the embattled president those who support opposition leader one guy dole who many say is the rightful leader to resign more now from caracas two thousand and thousands of people i'm gathering here in the center. bonding of
